Dr. Trey Crisco Funded for Next Level of Therapeutic Gaming


Dr. Trey Crisco, a professor of orthopedics at Brown University and researcher in the RI Hospital COBRE for Skeletal Health and Repair, has teamed up with Timocco a virtual motion therapeutic-gaming company to develop gaming technology to help children with cognitive, motor and learning disabilities.  The team recently secured $800,000 through the U.S.-Israel Binational Industrial Reserach and Development Foundation for the work.
